Remember that Europe was accused of lagging behind the UK in terms of Covid vaccinations. That was due to the fact that Europe took longer to give regulatory approval to vaccines and the short supply of Astra Zeneca.
The table has now turned. Spain is the nation that has fully vaccinated the largest share of the population out of the 50 largest countries in the world, outstripping the United Kingdom, the United States, France and Germany.
According to the latest figures, 55.7% of the population in Spain is completely vaccinated, equalling 26.4 million people. A total of 31.3 million have at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, or 66% of the population.
